Curinsoi - “Songs of medecine and power” - is a spiritual healing center dedicated to the application of the Traditional Amazonian Medicine as practiced in the Shipibo Tradition.
The Shipibo medicine is one of the most sophisticated tradition of the various plant medicines practiced all over the amazon rain forest.
The Shipibo people live in the area of Puccallpa in the Peruvian Amazon. According to their cosmology the plants which surround them are living entities, spirits which can help human beings for healing, personal development or shamanic apprenticeship.
At Curinsoi we practice the Shipibo medicine in its purest form following the ways of the oldest schools of shamans. We use traditional plants and the spiritual knowledge of our ancestors to help our visitors to regain health and harmony in their life. To do so we work with traditional plant diets and personalized healing treatments through ceremonies, massages, steam baths, plant baths.
All these healing practices help to free the patient from negative energies and bring balance and harmony in the body, spirit and soul.
According to the Shipibo Tradition a disease can be physical, psychological or spiritual. In Curinsoi we treat many different kinds of conditions such as traumas, sadness, chronic depressions, spells, addictions as well as physical conditions such as chronic disease, infections, tumors, cancer...
The Center also welcomes persons who want to study the shipibo medicine and initiate themselves to this shamanic tradition.
The property is not far from Iquitos nevertheless it is located deep enough in the forest so that you can experience the beauty and majesty of a pristine environment with a vast variety of old tress and plants. This surrounding supports the spiritual connection to the energies of the forest which connection is an integral aspect of the healing process as we intend it.
There are 20 “tambos”, individual huts, in which people can isolate for the duration of the treatment if they wish. To respond the comfort western people are used to, all the “tambos” are large and enclosed with mosquito nets. We also have a kitchen which serves diet food, toilets and showers, and a botanical garden.
Curinsoi is open all year round for individual visitors and groups. We welcome people who come for healing as well as those who wish to apprentice. You can stay with us for one or two nights or for several months.
“Our objective is that our visitors go back home healed and happy.”
